Pie OTA Update
You must be on complete stock in order for this update to install!
Download it to the root of your internal storage
give moto update service storage permission
check for update/install update/wait.
When it's done updating, install twrp and your choice of GSI ROM.


PERSONAL UPDATE
My G6 Play (JETER-SPRINT), just recently had it's screen die. I replaced it with an E5 Play, because it was cheaper. I would love to get another G6, but unfortunately my lack of money does prevent me from doing so. My G6 Play and my E5 Play both had their screens die, and I've gotten an E4 (PERRY-TMOBILE), as well as an unmoddable phone.

I have done so, but it doesn't seem to have any effect, are there any settings that I need to change or enable?

Update: It now works after installing the Audio Modification Library from Magisk along with Viper.
Can also confirm this works. Thanks!

A few questions:
A) Did you unlock your bootloader?
B) Do you have TWRP installed?
C) Have you disabled DM Verity
If you answered no to A, that's your problem.

Yes I did unlock the boot loader right when I got the phone and rooted it and installed TWRP and I haven’t disabled dm verity, but i will do it after class.

Thank you so much for helping me out here!

Its running!!

No problem, is it up and running?
so i got it running the problem was dm verity, i followed the steps on the website and it didn't work the 1st time so i reformatted all the partitions with TWRP and used adb fastboot to install the stock ROM and to my surprise it worked. since the TWRP recovery was replaced with the stock one i reinstalled TWRP and booted onto recovery and installed the DM verity on the stock rom and tried AOSP gsi and it booted up perfectly and i installed the android GO gapps and its faster than a dream. i was having a problem with audio so i tried installing V4A and it fixed all the audio problems except the earpiece when making calls.

I would like to contribute to this thread because the moto g6 play needs more attention, so could the readers of this thread send me roms you would like me to test.

Thank you soooo much her0.

No. He's thanking me for helping him with his problem. Secondly, I added the twrp recommendation today (or yesterday), and I was more or less waiting for you to post your thread in the right forum.

A couple solutions for problems I ran into.

No Play Protect Certification when using Gapps:
This one is very easy to solve. First, install your GSI of choice, but do not install Gapps. Install Magisk as well. Then you want to boot, and go straight to Magisk and install the MagiskHide Props module. Then go to https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2239421 download Osmosis Busybox and install through Magisk. Reboot and download your favorite Terminal Emulator on APKPure. Install it and open, type "props" without the quotes and press 1 to edit your fingerprint, follow the instructions and set it to the Moto G6 Play but don't reboot when asked. When at the main menu again, Press 2 and then choose the first option and enable it, this time reboot when asked. Load into TWRP and install Gapps, no need to clear cache or anything.

Audio is choppy:
Simply enable the equalizer.

Unsure, didn't come across this with my device. Sorry that I don't have a fix.
